After reading some of your answers to other comments, it seems to me that you are constantly changing the rules and giving what you try to do better odds to succeed. Alas there is no chance to succeed: even if there was god he/she/it would be not be so lame as to "scratch their name" (or "do Graffiti on his best work" as some other fellow here put it) as Kilroy in the public toilets.
At first you say 5 first verses from the Genesis is all you are looking to match but later you ask yourself how many characters is statistically significant.
Later you said that you will also read the DNA backwards. And why not side-ways I ask? Or in leave-one-out fashion -- given how sloppy god is.
You then say that you want to convert the bases to bits using a particular (intuitive) method. But billion other methods exist. So soon you will try another one and another one. One of it will give you better results, 46 characters instead of the average 45. Is that god's encoding of choice?
You may soon discover that there are endless possibilities (I believe 64P22 = 90310590525273233291833690659225600000) to encode 64 codons to 22 alphabet letters. That's a few orders of magnitude more than the million monkeys suggested by another person in here.
For some of these encodings you are bound to go a bit further to finding god in a place who is *definetely* not.
The first doctrine of the Scientific Method - which is the last thing in the mind of bigots (I mean those "lobotomised by religion", greek "θρησκόληπτος") - is to first (before results come out) set the rules of the experiment and define exactly what each possible outcome means for the conclusions.
